    There is going to be spread in colleges and schools. Most likely, the spread on colleges will be significantly undercounted from students not getting tested. The sanctions for rules violations against students as a result of contact tracing ensures this. Hopefully, the communities will not suffer.

    Look I disagree with you on this, there's nothing that you've shared with that would change my opinion.

    I went to CVS to pick up a prescription yesterday in the drive through. I was short on time as I had to get to a meeting, but the Pharm tech asked me if I wanted to come in and get my flu shot (which I was planning on getting next week some time) I told her I only had a few minutes and she responded that they would get it all ready for me so I could just come in an get it real quick.

    I was very happy to see that they are pushing the FLU shot so much, I have never had them be so pro active and it was nice to see. I will really have a problem with folks who don't get a flu shot this year. I have friends who never get it and have urged them all to. It's one of the little things we can do to make sure our hospitals don't have issues with Flu and COVID. Even though you never see it on the news, hospitals can and have had capacity issues during a bad flu seasons just like COVID.

    Knock on wood but our schools are finishing up week #3 and our counties numbers continue to drop. We had 48 cases in the entire county yesterday and haven't had a day over 100 cases in almost 3 weeks. I live in a county that has a population of 553,000

    We are also seeing alot of kids who chose online learning opt back in the brick and mortar. My sons elementary school has been fantastic in dealing with this whole thing. Kudos to all those great teachers out there who went back to teach our kids.

    Disagree all you want. There is a thread on mask wearing and other places where the multiple studies have been posted and the meta analysis discussed. Repeating the same thing multiple times across multiple threads is a waste to time. Because Meta analysis will not change anyone’s mind as long as click bait discussions will support contrary views.

    7-day average new hospitalizations down to 173 (lowest since June 28th - 172)

    Case count over 400 lower than last Friday report, but 7-day average seems to be fluctuating around 2500-2600 the last 11 days.

    7-day average for positivity drops below 12% for the first time in at least 2.5 months (11.9%).

    14-day total for age group 5-14 continues to drop, now down to 1801.

    State active COVID hospitalizations below 2400, Alachua County goes below 70.

    No one wants anyone to die, just want the US shutdown to ensure Trump is voted out in November.

    The entire US wasn't shut down at any point in time, and is nearly back to wide open. This doesn't make sense.

    Why does it make sense to sensationalize Covid cases at Colleges? All that should be focused on is making sure the college kids don't go near any elderly or immune suppressed people. And wear masks when in stores. MSM is scrambling like crazy hoping there is a college kid in the hospital so they can say "see, college isn't safe." Look at the USAToday yesterday saying it was crazy of the Big Ten to return to football. Why? The players are insanely more likely to be seriously injured playing the game then having an issue with Covid. But that doesn't stop the MSM from spreading fear. Been doing it for months.

    7-day average seems to have hit a plateau, possibly starting to trend slightly upwards. 3-straight days with the number below 2500 (9/12 report through 9/14 report), and it's now back up to 2,744.

    Good news, in a few areas, though:

    Testing percentage continues to go down. Reporting data from yesterday shows 9.5% positivity bringing the 7-day average down to 11.5%.
    7-day average for new hospitalizations is down to 165.
    5-14 age group, 14-day totals for new COVID cases = 1792 (still slowly dropping).
    Active COVID hospitalizations across the state are now below 2300.

    Alachua County Public Schools Active cases:

    Elementary Staff: 2
    Elementary Students: 5
    (7 schools involved)

    Middle School Staff: 2
    Middle School Students: 4
    (4 schools involved)

    High School Staff: 0
    High School Students: 5
    (2 schools involved)

    no new posts, guess no news is good news, new cases still under 4,000. not counting the september 1 data dump, last day over 4,000 was august 22, last over 5,000 was august 15. guess school openings were not so bad afterall.

    Kind of stuck in a rut in terms of bringing the number of new cases down. Last 7 days, 7-day average MIN = 2680, 7-day average MAX = 2744.

    New hospitalizations, 7-day average down to 156 (lowest since June 21st)

    So 209 deaths reported today but the past 30 day chart does not have 209 deaths if you add up the newly identified deaths. My only assumption is that they are new deaths past 30 days ago?? If I counted correctly, that is 111 deaths in the past 30 days. That means 98 of them are from over 30 days ago.
    If that is the case, why does the media continue to focus on new daily deaths. They should be focusing on the recent trend.

    the media focusing on daily deaths is to scare people, 209 looks a whole lot worse than if they say yes, it was 209, but that is what was reported today, not how many died, it seems this is running out of steam nationally.

    Or perhaps they should be focusing on the fact that current estimates are likely undercounting deaths, given how much they were apparently undercounting them a month ago. I doubt that issue has been fixed in the last month.
